Probably the best food on Bowen, a warm cozy and comfortable French Bistro environment. Not an extensive menu but it is a bistro and what they do serve is very high quality.

We were very happy to find that Rustique Bistro does have some vegan options - roast brussel sprouts, a dark olive dish with flat bread, and delish french fries. They all went really well with our prosecco. We sat outside, romantic!
